“We've dealt with dozens of real estate agents over many years & rarely found it enriching, but Frank has been a notable exception. He is an authentic bloke who showed genuine understanding & respected our wishes & decisions unwaveringly. Dealing with Frank was a pleasure, & more so because he got us a fantastic result.

“ What can we say about Frank Barker? About a year ago we got a leaflet in the mail for a free property appraisal in his name. At that time, we were planning to move back to Portugal but thinking of selling through the same agent we bought it from in the first place, & we thought why not! let’s check this one out! So we did & we couldn’t be happier with him, always very friendly & upfront about everything. The sale was pretty quick, we never thought it was going to be sold that soon. Frank is very professional & honest. If anyone wants to sell their property Frank Barker is your man! ”
“ Frank recently sold my block of land in Kangaroo Valley which I had been struggling to sell myself. From our first meeting I knew he would be the one to get me the price I was after, he actually recommended I post it for more than I intended & he achieved this higher price! His easy going & friendly manner combined with his extensive local knowledge gave me the confidence to put my property in his hands. ”
“ I would like to highly recommend Frank Barker as the successful agent who negotiated the recent sale of our farm property at Avoca in the Southern Highlands. He showed straightforward negotiating skills without complications & always maintained a friendly manner. Frank maintained enthusiasm with clients & the property was sold in 80 days to the fourth buyer to inspect. His comprehension of the rural side of the property was very sound. I feel confident in saying that Frank is a very capable agent who handled the entire selling experience with thoughtfulness & expertise. ”
“ Frank Barker was appointed to sell my home on a five-acre property in Kangaroo Valley. After an unsatisfactory period with another agent we were delighted with Frank as he kept me up to date on a weekly basis & worked on my behalf to get the best possible price. Up front & honest are two words that come to mind. If I ever need to sell again I would not hesitate to employ Frank. He is a true professional & someone I now count as a friend. ”
“ I have known Frank Barker for almost 10 years & during that time I have found him to be very kind, honest & professional with a high level of integrity. I worked with Frank at Lindy Ross Kangaroo Valley Real Estate from early 2007 to 2008 and during that time I observed him to be a highly diligent, hardworking agent with a wonderful rapport with his clients & purchasers as well as other staff. His level of commitment to obtaining results was outstanding. He is a highly ethical agent and person, who always has the utmost respect for his client's needs & always prioritises their requirements. It was a pleasure to work with Frank & I consider myself lucky to be able to also call him a friend. ”
“ I am really pleased that I chose Frank Barker as the agent to sell my house in Robertson. Frank is a great communicator, he has an open and honest style and his selling strategy was spot on. I found Frank to be very experienced and professional and I really enjoyed working with him. Frank is a very good agent and now a friend. ”
“ After making enquiries with several other agencies, we met Frank Barker and found him to be very positive about our property. He also recommended a better selling price than any other agent. Frank successfully sold the property within 4 weeks for an extremely good price, more than we were expecting. We found Frank to be very honest, enthusiastic and professional while also being very easy going and friendly. We found it a pleasure to work with Frank, and regard him as a friend. We would highly recommend Frank to anyone wishing to sell their property in the Southern Highlands. ”
“ From the very first moment of inspecting our property and focusing on the best points of interest, Frank's enthusiasm to sell our property was eagerly & clearly expressed. We thought this is the guy for us! We found Frank to be committed, ethical, friendly, honest, reliable & trustworthy. How can one person be all of the above, but Frank Barker is. He also has a great sense of humour & we enjoyed our interaction with him. ”
“ NOT ALL REAL ESTATE AGENTS ARE CREATED EQUAL - There are those that stand out above the rest. They have the understanding and knowledge of the market that is required to be successful. They process compassion and empathy for the vendor selling, what can be a very emotional asset. Their patience and persistence is forever present. They know how to make the tough decisions. Their negotiation skills help set them ahead of the rest. They don’t give up. And where would a vendor be without honesty and trust between them and the agent. The agent I chose to sell my home was Frank Barker. He is one of those people. I would highly recommend him as he provided professional services of the highest quality. Kind regards, Kim Oliver – Burradoo ”
“ Friendly Without Pressure - Frank was very easy to deal with. He was warm, friendly and is one of the first real estate agents I have met who didn’t leave me with that horrible used car salesman bad taste in my mouth. We would happily utilise Franks services again. Dave and Leanne Clarke – Robertson ”
“ Highly recommended! - Initially we only spoke to Frank to obtain a professional estimation of the property's value, however he quickly convinced us that if we put it on the market, he would be able to get a much higher price that we had envisaged - which he consequently achieved in a very short space of time! Being a resident there himself, he knows the market in Kangaroo Valley very well so his local knowledge was valuable. He put a lot of effort into the sale, holding a number of open houses leading up the busy Christmas period and was able to present us with a number of offers from interested parties. His negotiation and communication skills were first-class and we were very pleased with the final outcome. We would highly recommend Frank if you are looking at selling your property. Gail and Brad Dolphin – Wildes Meadow ”
“ No One Like Frank! - Frank was recommended to us by a friend who had sold his house in the same area. From our first meeting with Frank, we felt relieved and confident that we had finally found an experienced and intelligent estate agent that not only understood his role as an agent, but had that X factor of a human being! He has a laid-back, genuine, yet intelligent attention to the job that resulted in an effortless sale. We felt very comfortable and assured in his professional, yet friendly manner. Thank you, Frank! David Shaw and Monique Goliger – Robertson ”
“ Frank Barker is a genuine human being who happens to work in real estate (and loves it) - I've dealt with dozens of real estate agents over many years and rarely found it enriching, but Frank has been a notable exception to the various well-known stereotypes about the profession. He is an authentic bloke who clearly loves his job and enjoys helping people and seeing them happy with their sale and/or purchase. He showed genuine understanding of our emotional attachment to our home and respected our wishes and decisions unwaveringly, giving us his time and really good advice when we needed it but also knowing when to give us space. Dealing with Frank was a pleasure, and all the more so because he got us a fantastic result. I recommend frank without hesitation, and would look forward to dealing with him again. Mike Hammond & Katie Perry – Kangaroo Valley ”
“ Great agent, very easy to deal with and went the extra mile - Frank was a pleasure to deal with, he made the whole process extremely easy, would absolutely recommend. Lincoln and Jayne James ”
“ Best Agent Yet - We have dealt with a number of agents over the years and I can, with all sincerity, say that Frank has been the most personable, genuine and friendly agent yet. He was able to answer all of our questions about the valley and clearly loves it. He negotiated the purchase of our land professionally and without pressure. We can also thank Frank for helping us find our dream home. Frank is out and about in the community and always shows a genuine interest in how our build is going. Thanks Frank - we appreciate it! Julie Sullivan – Kangaroo Valley ”
“ It has been a pleasure working with Frank during the sale of our property. He has been in contact with us after every open inspection with feedback on prospective enquiries. He offers suggestions on how to best present your property for optimum sales price, even giving local tradespeople details to help with this happening. Anytime we met or had a phone conversation to discuss the property, he followed up with items discussed in a short time and advised us of the outcome. Due to ofetn being at a distance to the property and Frank living nearby, he often visited the property on our behalf for issues needing attention. He understands the local area because he lives there and has an interest in getting the right place for new members into our community but is always working for the sellers interest as well. You can trust his professionalism and he delivers what he says he’ll do. ”
